    Former Employee - Director Product Manager in Minneapolis, MN
    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ameriprise

    Pros

    Large company pros - good benefits, lots of areas for future career moves, training, learning from and with smart colleagues, some interesting projects

    Cons

    Large company cons - bureaucratic, lip service cultural programs (mandatory participation on an employee engagement committee - ugh), silo'd departments and territory turf wars among senior leaders

    Advice to Management

    I quit my manager, not the company. He was a narcissistic empire builder focused only on his relative positioning with his peers - had very little people/team development interest or ability. The company as a whole isn't any better or worse than other large companies.
